In one such new study, the researchers have gathered enough evidence to claim the fact that the brain changes can occur 34 years before the actual symptoms of the condition are evident.

A new study conducted has found constricting changes in not just the neurochemistry but also the anatomy of the brain which occurs decades before the actual symptoms of the disease start creeping in. With over 35 million globally being affected by this condition, it is of no surprise that it is termed as a global epidemic. The rate of this is believed to double in the coming two decades.

Knowing about the risk factors and detecting the condition early on has been found to have beneficial impacts on planning care and the therapeutic interventions to help cure the condition.
